Latitude, Longitude: 36.193230, -112.048610

The paved trail to Bright Angel Point (0.25 mile/0.4 km) provides one of the North Rim?s most spectacular views. Walk slowly and pace yourself; Bright Angel Point is 8,148 feet/2,484 meters above sea level (5,780 feet/1,762 meters above the Colorado River). High altitude and an elevation change of 200 feet/60 meters warrant extra caution for those with heart or respiratory conditions. The trail also follows a narrow, steep ridge and is exposed to lightning during storms. Stay on the trail and away from the edge. If a thunderstorm should pass through, seek
shelter at the lodge.
